Focus is unibody though?


He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

I'm not too sure.. I didn't see it but what he told me was that the front of his frame snapped and he lost his wheel bearings and a tire came off. His words not mine lol

Sounds like he probably broke a hub assembly or possibly a suspension control arm, neither one of which is part of the "frame" but someone without much knowledge of cars might think it is (especially the control arms). I suppose it could be a control arm mount which would usually be welded to the engine sub-frame assembly.

Did he try to off-road his Focus , hit a curb or large pot hole at speed? If it "just broke" he probably ignored warning signs for a long time, these rarely fail without making allot of noise and vibration first.

You feel really weird when you realize you don't have anything to tweak/adjust/fix at any given time.
Hahaha SUV one all the time! New girl started at my work and she informed me that "I drive a jeep too!" "Yeah what model?" "Rav 4"

You know you own an XJ with hood vents when you open your hood and there is bird poop on your valve cover.
